X = # of cars entering a highway in 1 minute X = # of calls received in 30 sec at a telephone exchange X = # of customers arriving at a checkout counter in 2 min X = # of patients arriving at Emergency in 1 hour X = # of tornados observed in day (during “peak season”) Assumption: P(X= x ) = Section 3.6
